not by a drone, but by a navy s.e.a.l. team was of course the killing of osama bin laden in his compound in pakistan. the highest professional drone strike killing was this guy, anwar al awlaki. he was born in new mexico and killed in yemen. but between those very high profile killings, there have been dozens and dozens, ultimately hundreds of drone strikes under president obama, most of them mostly unnoticed in the news. tonight monday of president obama's inauguration, the first day president obama outlined this wide ranging liberal agenda for his second term, that same day there was a drone strike in yemen. and that drone strike on inauguration day followed drone strikes in yemen on both days of the weekend that preceded inauguration day. so we had drone strikes on saturday and on sunday and on monday, the monday the president was sworn in. it doesn't really make the news. one of the most unusual things about drone strikes for us as citizens in a country that does this is that for so long our country would not admit that we did them, even when we all knew that we did. that was the cas

america into this world of predator drones and navy seals and cyber warfare and sort of the dark arts of the special forces and the cia-- and that would be a major part of his foreign policy-- i don't think anyone would have predicted that. >> he's the first bel peace prize winner with a kill list. and it is very disappointing to his base. it is very disappointing to civil liberties supporters who thought he was going to be much more of a stereotypical liberal. >> narrator: in the spring of 2011, obama's covert war scored a significant victory. it began with a single piece of intelligence. cia director leon panetta had learned osama bin laden might be living in a compound in pakistan. >> the intelligence case was entirely circumstantia bodyaw oma b laden, had a full id on him. >> how could he live for many years inside a walled compound and never leave? why would osama bin laden want to be 35 miles from islamabad? why would he want to be steps away from pakistan's equivalent of west point? did any of this make sense? >> narrator: the president called together his national security tea
says since the israeli navy keeps palestinian boats from reaching the better fishing waters farther out. >> warner: how do you feel about israelis, do you blame all israelis. >> no, there are some who are decent and some who are bad. the government is bad. >> warner: so do you think there can be peace -- >> we pray to god for peace between us. so they won't kill me and i won't kill them. >> they can't stand us, period. they don't like us at all. as far as they're concerned, we can all die. there's no solution. none at all. >> warner: attitudes making for rough waters for efforts to restart negotiations in the year to come. z >> woodruff: you can see more reporting from margaret and our team in the middle east online. >> brown: this was hillary clinton's last day on the job as secretary of state. ray suarez looks at the diplomatic career of the former first lady and u.s. senator. >> i am more optimistic today than i was when i stood here four years ago. >> suarez: clinton bid farewell to her staff today as a standing room-only crowd packed into the state department's lobby. >> i have see
and the reserve and i'm working for the navy. good afternoon, again. my question is do you think we're in risk of the same mistake we saw after vietnam in losing the expertise with the potential sequester and the possibility of losing special operations funding and the hard, expertise of our special operators? >> yeah. yeah we are. first, the difn budget is already coming down and needs to come down a lot. the -- defense budget has gotten huge and based upon the nation's finances we have to bring it down. i think the process is already underway. what people talk about defense they talk about we need to spend three or 4% of gdp for defense. i think that's a dumb approach. you need to spend as much foreign defense as you need to defend yourself. it was designed to be something so that sane people would never let it happen. [laughter] we confused the last part. because what happens is now if you sequester in 2013 and you don't make the decision until early spring, they only have the rest of the fiscal year to execute that. they have to take the cut about the last six or seven month of the years.
understood the similarity. unlike some of its competitive navies, in in the british navy, a british naval officer had to start as a mid shipman, had to be able to do everything on the ship. literally had to be able to do every job with. had to do everything as they worked themselves up. they were not the aristocracy given commands to command ships of war. they were middle class people who became highly professional and competent. and can their crews were built on being highly professional and competent. as you know to a degree, crews benefited when they captured or destroyed an enemy ship, but if they captured it, it was prize money. and to a degree they became entrepreneurs. as one author said, they became entrepreneurs of battle. and what nelson understood was they were self-motivated and extraordinarily competent entities. and what he had to do was move them into position where those motivations and those talents could be put in position. he department have to fight the fight -- he didn't have to fight the fight for them, he had to build them into confident, competent, capable, self-co
four tours in iraq. another veteran he was trying to help is now charged with killing retired navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle at a gun range in texas. casey stiegel, with more on that. a lot of talk about ptsd, post-tramatic stress disorder. did the gunman here have that? >> reporter: we simply don't know. it is important to point out that chris kyle had a reputation for helping troops who had come back home and suffered ptsd but we do not know if that is the case with this man. the only thing the pentagon told us about the alleged gunman he was a corporal in the marines and that he was active duty from 2006 to 2010. did tours of duty in iraq and haiti but was most recently listed as reserve. at a weekend news conference authorities here in texas says he was unemployed and navy suffered from a mental illness as a result of his time in the military but no real motive has been given. kyle, his friend, chad littlefield and roth drove to the gun range in kyle's truck on saturday where investigators say ralph shot and killed the two men, stole the truck and drove to his sister's home. told them
't killed on the battlefield. this shooting wasn't an accident either. former navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle and friend chad littlefield decided to take eddie ray routh to a gun range. in texas. routh was thought to be showing signs of post traumatic stress disorder. these two men thought they could take him out, try to help him. less than two hours later, both kyle and littlefield were dead and former marine eddie ray routh is charged with their murder. >> apparently mr. kyle works with people that are suffering from some issues that had been in the military. and this -- this shooter is possibly one of those people that he had taken out to the range, to mentor, to visit with, to help him, you know, that's all. >> dr. sanjay gupta, we don't know for sure if this shooter had ptsd. you look at his resume, if you will, three tours of duty, marine, would that be a first thought of yours? ptsd? >> it would be high on the list, people described him as having those sorts of symptoms. look at the statistics, one in five, one in six, returning veterans have ptsd. the numbers are pretty high. and keep
forces initiative. a marine sergeant in the reserve and in working for the navy. good afternoon again. my question is, do you think were at risk of the same mistake we saw after vietnam and using the expertise with this potential sequester on the possibility of moving operations funding and the hard expertise of our special operators? >> yeah, we are. first, the defense budget is coming down and it needs to come down a lot. the defense budget has gotten huge and based upon the nations finances, we've got to bring it down, but the process is underway. people sometimes talk about what needs than 3% or 4% of gdp for defense. that's a approach. you need to spend as much on defense is a need to defend yourself, but no more and i think they're working on that. the sequester is completely different. sequestered was designed to be something so unpalatable that sane people would never let it happen. [laughter] we confuse the last part because what happens is that the sequester in 2013 and don't think the decision until early spring, they only have the rest of the fiscal year to execute that code w

of the competitive navies, the french or spanish, in the british navy, a british naval officer had to stop as a midshipman. he had to be able to do -- start as a midshipman. he had to be able to do every job on the ship. they were not the aristocracy given commands -- giving commands. they were middle-class people who became highly professional. and competent. their crews were built on being highly professional and competent. as you know, to a degree, cruise benefited when they captured or destroyed any ship -- crews benefited when they captured or destroyed any ship. to a degree, they became entrepreneurs of battle. what nelson understood was they were self-motivated and extraordinarily competent entities. what he had to do was move them into position where those motivations and those talents could be put in position. he did not have to fight the fight. he did not have to micromanage. he had to build them into confident, competent, capable, self-contained crews and leaders, maneuver them into position where they could have the effect that he wanted, and then do it. that was very similar t
is a big part of that. so secretary of the navy has basically said that they're sort of -- contingency planning is to cancel 55% of takeoffs or landings on aircraft carriers, 23 ships won't get maintenance or repair work. >> bill: so in terms of preparedness, right, this would be a disaster. >> it is. that was panetta's point. we're really -- >> bill: why do republicans want this? >> i was on the floor yesterday rattling off all of the statistics. speaker boehner actually followed me and you know, went off on this sort of gimmick bill that they're talking about. the president has to come up with a balanced budget within the next ten years. so you know, sequestration, as you know a mechanism back in the '80s, graham ruddiman, the language is also verbatim and it was never intended to actually go into effect. it was to force people to compromise and negotiate. >> bill: which is what we thought it would be over the fight over the debt ceiling. >> when you're talking about a trillion dollars of deficit reduction over the next ten years, the fact is that you could do this on the back of an
out of training in july, 1968, went to the united states navy, and belt with peak -- dealt with people coming back from "apocalypse now," essentially. the involvement that john kerry had, i saw the people on those boats. host: did that inspire you to run for congress, serving in your 13th term? guest: absolutely, i came back in july of 1970 and was elected. i think war was generally destructive. that is why i opposed the iraq war. i have seen the movie before. i know what is coming back from iraq and afghanistan and i did not want it to happen. we are inundated with suicide and all kinds of problems in our society. that had an impact on me, john kerry, chuck hagel -- a lot of us went through all of us to understand what war is all about. host: a little background as we talk to jim mcdermott. wayne, a question or comment for the congressman. caller: healthcare, medicare stuff like that, -- medicare should stay with the younger -- elder folks that earned it. healthcare, right now, it should be with the company's. right now i am with a -- i am a truck driver. we have to pay for our own me
in the military. i spent 25 years in the u.s. navy. i've shot these weapons. i've flown in combat. these weapons are extremely effective at killing a lot of people very quickly. and they should be reserved for the united states military. >> you know, mika, i hear that over and over again from my friends that have served in the military. we've heard it from colin powell. we heard it from stan mcchrystal. so many of my friends that have served in the army that have served in the marines say i've used these weapons. i know what they're for. they're for killing a lot of people as quickly as possible. they should be used for killing enemies on foreign battlefields, not for civilian use. >> and we're hearing from general after general that comes on our show and actually has an honest conversation about this, which is what we do here. and they don't see a place for it in our society. and i don't understand -- i had a very hard time listening to the testimony from the nra as well as from -- i think it's gayle trotter, the lawyer who is representing their point of view because it just, to me, is putting
